TTI Floor Care North America is the largest floor care business in North America, owning three of the biggest names in floor care- Hoover, Dirt Devil, & Oreck. Each of these premier brands has a rich history that we're building on each day. Since 2016, TTI Floor Care has been based out of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Hoover:We acquired this marquee brand in 2007, but Hoover's history reaches back more than 100 years and traces a path to the very invention of the vacuum itself. In 1907, janitor Murray Spangler saw a problem that needed fixing: In the course of his daily work, he encountered dust that triggered asthma attacks. Working at night, Spangler devised a "suction sweeper" to pull dust and dirt out of the air and off the ground. W. H. Hoover bought Spangler's patent in 1908, and began selling the country's first sweepers to the public. It was the beginning of more than a century of innovations, from our famous beater bar to disposable paper vacuum bags, vacuum cleaner headlights and self-propelling technology and even the side-mounted hose. Today, Hoover continues to build on its history of innovation and creating effortless cleaning solutions.
Dirt Devil/Royal: TTI purchased the Royal and Dirt Devil lines in 2002 - and acquired a company with an esteemed path through floor care history. In 1905, the P. A. Geier Company - creator of the Royal line of home cleaners - was founded in Cleveland, Ohio. By 1937 the company was producing the world's first hand-held vacuum, the Royal Prince. It was a sign of things to come. In 1953, ownership of the P. A. Geier Company changed hands, and the company was renamed Royal Appliance Manufacturing to better highlight its marquee line of trademarked machines. Dirt Devil joined the Royal family in 1981 and debuted its runaway best-seller, the Hand Vac, in 1984. More than 23 million hand vacs have been sold since its inception. Dirt Devil makes some of the most convenient, affordable home cleaning products on the market today.
Oreck: Oreck joined the TTI family in 2013. One of America's most beloved vacuum brands, with a fiercely loyal base of customers, Oreck produces lightweight, powerful, premium cleaners. Oreck was founded by American entrepreneur David Oreck in 1963. He had an obvious yet radical idea: design a lightweight yet powerful vacuum to relieve the drudgery felt by hotel housekeepers using the much heavier models then available to them. The idea proved so successful that today more than 50,000 hotels throughout the world use commercial-grade Oreck vacuums. Naturally, hotel staff wanted to buy these vastly improved vacuum cleaners for their own use at home. And so, his original idea evolved: Oreck Corporation began selling its unique products to residential consumers as well. Oreck is committed to those same values and is a leader in quality and superior customer care.

I have been working at TTI Floor Care North America Inc. full-time (Less than a year)
The People - The organization contains a plethora of very talented people. I rarely work with anyone that wouldn't have been a star performer in my previous organizations. Even with this talent, everyone works well together and new ideas are welcomed. Most people are from other organizations because TTI moved from Cleveland which has injected a lot of excitement and energy into the organization.
The Work Environment - The facility is top notch. There is a cafeteria, coffee shop and gym on site. The offices are new and open with a lot of windows. The work/life balance is terrific, the managers are not timekeepers but people are held responsible for their work product. There are a lot of corporate team building events which are always fun and well done.
The Opportunity - There are three main Strategic Business Units (Oreck, Hoover, Dirt Devil) and the organization is growing and has a lot of energy which provides an environment for significant personal and professional growth. A typical project lasts 3 or 4 months so there is always a new challenge on the horizon. Tuition assistance is provided.
TTI may not be for people that are not able to be nimble when accommodating changing requirements. The organization is growing and the processes are still being ironed out. The environment is very fast paced and requirements change often. The organization is dependent on foreign suppliers which do require calls late at night and very early in the morning at times to resolve issues and coordinate projects.
Advice to Management
Focus on getting the processes defined and communicated so that the organization can function more efficiently.
I applied online. I interviewed at TTI Floor Care North America Inc. (Anderson, SC) in April 2017.
I interviewed for three positions in two days with the company and overall I was very pleased with their professionalism, generosity and honesty about each individual aspect of the position
